Project consists of the procurement of an asset - work management database system and operational hardware. The department's current call tracking system, implemented in 2003, is not expandable to conduct adequate asset management functions or to produce necessary reports for regulatory requirements. In addition, the software is no longer supported by the vendor and is failing. The new database and hardware systems will be used to track and schedule work, projects, and citizen complaints necessary to conduct asset management operations and meet multiple regulatory reporting requirements.
The Town's consultant hired to perform an Asset Management study determined that there were 5,500 street signs that are owned by the Town. It was determined that they did not capture all of the signs during this study and they missed an estimated 2000 signs. We will be replacing the 7,500 signs over the next 5 years, or roughly 1,500 signs annually.
